Little Brodie Bear is definately feeling better. He stayed home with his family last night while I went to work and I came home to find him up running on his wheel. He bounced over to me with that Brodie brash look in his eyes. It was so good to see that spark of fire and fearlessness back. I showed him to my Mom who hadn't seen him in a few days and she smiled and said "He looks normal!" and he most definately does..... eyes bright and wide open, ears perked, head up and alert....the only thing marring the normalness of his face is the scabs where his abscess was and a few tiny scabs around his eye still. He was also snuffling less today than he was yesterday. Still some, but not as much. His weight is back down some tho. But with his increased activity and him not being with me to eat every few hours overnight, I guess it's not too surprising. I'm going to continue to "push" the HPW when he takes his meds and offer extra treats to keep his weight where it is and hopefully put a few more grams back on. I'm going to talk with the vet on Tuesday and find out when I should start weaning him off the benadril....I hate to start that until the sniffles are totally gone, but it shouldn't (fingers crossed) be too much longer. The meds will take a bit longer. I've been told with severe sinus infections that to prevent a reoccurance that meds need to be continued for several weeks after symptoms disapear, so we are still looking at a long stint on antibiotics still, but we can deal with that easy.
